RE: Airbox Mod

Yep, cool air is orders of magnitude more beneficial Vs any ram-air effect.
You need to approach Mach 1 for any real ram-air benefits......


I'm not understanding the post I guess. Is it more beneficial just
cooling the air than sending more in? Say in stock form the engine
flows X litres of air, if I put the vents on the grill or hood and
flow X+Y litres of air would it be better than simply cooling the X
litres of air the stock machine gets? Sorry, I didn't realise that
mentioning the placement of the intake on top of the hood would
result in ramming the air in, I thought it would be a good idea for
getting the ducting away from the hot engine unlike running the ducting
to the lower grill as it would still have to pass close to the hot
engine, so getting the air as it passes over the hood would seem
cooler than getting it from the lower grill as the ducting wouldn't
be heated as much.

Anyway, these are all thoughts.
